    Really neat little gem! Awesome food and stellar Mojito's! We made a reservation and advised we would have a stroller. We asked for any possible accommodations so it wouldn't be in the way of guests and staff. We also asked to move the reservation up by an hour. They not only changed the reservation easily, they were very kind in getting us a table that didn't impact anyone. Will absolutely be back!

    Everything about Chula was great. Easy reservations although it was really busy and we had to change the time at the last minute and they were very accommodating. The food was great and the I enjoyed the noisy, boisterous atmosphere. The staff were great. Not inexpensive...

    I've been here many times and know the food is delicious and fresh. It's why we went today! We got to sit outside, in their big patio area - so great on a sunny day. While there seemed to be plenty of staff, we waited a long time for everything along the way - orders taken, drinks to arrive, food to arrive. Management was helpful and provided compensation. I think they were having some issues in the kitchen and will definitely go back again.

    Had dinner with 2 friends. Shared dos amigos & shrimp ceviche to start, both great. We all got tacos as mains. We loved them all! Butternut squash, fish, bison, pork, beef. Tried a couple different margaritas, loved! Service was also great. We were seated on the heated patio and it was perfect. Thanks for a great night out!

    Fun, lively place with delicious menu options and great service. Corn on cob and butternut squash taco were yummy! Too bad no pitchers of Sangria and haddock taco was kinda underwhelming. We also didn't know we were being seated on the patio so we didn't dress appropriately. Overall though I would recommend Chula and be sure to go back!

    Went for my birthday on Cinco de Mayo. Food was really good but our group of 6 were sat on a couch which is not the ideal way to eat tacos (very messy). Also felt rushed out and were charged for guac we never got. My friend realized after paying the bill that we were charged for the guac and got the impression that the staff didn’t believe him. They said they couldn’t refund it so they sent him home with a guac to go.

    We had an absolutely horrible experience. We have been going for years but will never go back again. We had reservations and ordered a pitcher of margaritas to start. They dont have pitchers left. After less than an hour they were trying to kick us out even though we were ordering expensive drinks and appetizers. They never told us they needed the table after an hour. There were two tables available the entire time we were there. The manager was terrible and basically said too bad. Never again.

    The atmosphere is nice with cute decor. My favourite item on the menu was the Brussel Sprouts. Everything else was just okay. Fish Tacos were too battered that it was all the same texture with the fish and the batter. We asked for salsa with our chips and we got basically puréed tomato sauce. There were lots of drink options for everyone although they were a bit on the sweeter side for my preference. Overall, would go there again for drinks and snacks but maybe not for dinner.
